days of business. yeah, bad timing. >> in massachusetts more car trouble. an elderly driver was backing into his garage when he hit the gas instead of the brake. that sent his car right into the next door neighbor's pool after it crashed through a fence. he is said to be okay. and in ohio, a fast footed black bear stayed one step ahead of authorities. they did try everything they could think of to blast the bear but nothing worked. the bear just took off on its own and escaped. and finally, in massachusetts it's never hard to find a good bowl of seafood stew but probably not one where you have to use a rake to stir it. more than 6,500 pounds of seafood, bacon, potatoes, veggies all helped put the stew and the students over the top. here's bill karins with your weather forecast. >> i've always been good with the clams and lobster but the muscles. i've never -- >> really? it's all in the same family. when you mix it together with potatoes, bacon -- >> you can't taste it, so it would be fine. good morning to everyone out there. very humid conditions out there this morning. if you'r

in massachusetts and the first of four televised debates showcasing one of the country's most closely watched senate races. last night republican incumbent scott brown looked to defend his seat taking on democratic challenger, elizabeth warren in a race that could determine which party controls the senate. new polling released this week shows just how tight this race is. the suffolk university survey has warren leading brown by 4 points, 48% to 44% but the boston mass poll has scott brown leading, 49-456789 right out of the gate the candidates were asked about their opponent's character and brown questioned warren's native american heritage. >> professor warren claimed she was a native american, a person of color and as you can see she's not. that being said, she checked the box and she had an opportunity actually to make a decision throughout her career. when she applied to penn and harvard she checked the box claiming she was a native american. i don't know whether, in fact, she got ahead as a result of that checking of the box. >> when i was growing up the these are the sto

thing for romney back in massachusetts. listen to this. senator rob portman of ohio. he has done this before. he's playing the role of president obama in these mock debates and done this for republicans in the past cycles. on the other side, senator john kerry of massachusetts, playing the role of fellow massachusetts mitt romney and john kerry knows a bit about debating, the democrats' 2004 nominee. and mitt romney goes to colorado monday and the debate is wednesday. besides the preparation, we're seeing both campaigns trying to low low expectations. not just campaigns, listen to governor romney. >> he's president of the united states and an eloquent speaker. >> he's a very eloquent speaker and in his debate last time with senator mccain, he'll be very eloquent. >> reporter: the whole idea is lower the bar and if you're doing well you beat expectations and win the debate, the spin they're playing. listen to stephanie from the obama campaign. >> what history tells us that challengers normally win the first debate just by the fact they're standing on the stage with the president. that

that are simply not true. and one of our founding fathers, president john adams of massachusetts once said that facts are stubborn things. but last week as they nominated a very different man from massachusetts, republicans stubbornly smeared president obama's excellent record of reforming welfare. they went on and on pretending that our president weakened its work requirement. now everyone knows that that is a ridiculous charge even the republican author of welfare reform says romney is wrong. fact checkers have called this republican talking point blatantly false, a drastic distortion, wildly debunked and a mind-bonging act of untruth telling. now, in illinois we know president barack obama. (cheers and applause) we know president obama has always made sure has spearheaded welfare reform under in the land of lincoln and under president obama states can only get flexibility if they move 20% more people to work. let me repeat that for our republican friends. more people working! not less! ha (cheers and applause) then there's medicare. mitt romney and congressman ryan want to tak

massachusetts health care reform as proof that he does care about all people. >> throughout this campaign as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't think there is anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> touting his own health care plan there in massachusetts to drive home the point campaign says it's new ads showing mr. romney talking straight to camera about the middle class will now replace all ads running in nine swing states. just hours after that ad was released, the democratic national committee countered with its own version. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. >> i like being able to fire people. >> too many of those working are living paycheck to paycheck. >> i'll tell you what, $10,000? >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. >> i'm not concerned about the very poor. >> the difference is my policies will make things better for th

chance for a boost in her massachusetts race against scott brown. >> the system is rigged. look around. oil companies guzzle down billions in profits. billionaires pay lower tax rates than their secretaries. and wall street ceos, the same ones who wrecked our economy and destroyed millions of jobs, still strut around congress, no shame, demanding favors, and acting like we should thank them. does anyone here have a problem with that? well, i do too. i do too. >> so, guys, i thought it was a strong speech, but i have to say elizabeth warren has a problem here. she's fallen several points behind, i think about five or six points behind scott brown in this race. i think there's a frustration and a concern among democrats in massachusetts and nationally that the elizabeth warren that everyone was introduced to last year -- if you remember, there was that viral video where she had this impromptu explanation of the social contract. it was charismatic. i think democrats looked at that last fall and said this really is the perfect messenger for what we're trying to say about the economy. i don

saving the olympics. he got involved in politics in massachusetts and ended up being the governor of massachusetts. and think flourished. and i think the idea of putting a person in office who has proven an ability to make promises and keep promises is something i think that is very important in this debate. i've said and it's not just a line, i reilil really believe t that barack obama is not real any more to the american people. it's a terrible place for him to be. because part of the thrust of obama in 2008 is that here was this person, i know people say it, but here's a guy whose entire brand was bringing the country together and being different. >> part of my conversation with republican party chair, reince preibus and john sununu. >> it sarts with the president, you don't get bipartisanship oozing up. it has to start at the top. this president with his rhetoric, with his inability to sit down and converse in detail with republicans. his attitude at the meetings he had, speaking down to paul ryan who could have been his greatest asset in the process, this president doesn't know

6 points. in connecticut senate race chris murphy leads linda mcmahon. in massachusetts, a race we'll talk about, elizabeth warren had the lead over scott brown in four over five polls. nate silver who forecasts the down ballot races and his 538 blog for "the new york times" wrote on thursday, the democrats' chances of controlling the senate have increased to 79 percent ners in the forecast up from 70% on tuesday. had we run the model a month ago based on polls from august 19th, the democrats' chances of maintaining senate control would have been listed at just 39%. in the house the democrats still have an uphill battle to win back the house. the average at the polls is they have an advantage on the generic congressional vote, that was not a case just a month ago. pretty stunning turn around that prompts the obvious question. what has changed. john, you have been koofrg a lot of races. what's your theory of what this shift has been about? >> i think it's a multiple shift, not just one. i don't want to make it too complicated. the fact of the matter is in most of america we have
